The case studies presented in this volume have addressed HIV technologies as formations of the material, embodied, social and political in modes of engagement with the HIV epidemic. As argued throughout, this notion of HIV technologies is needed to grapple with the particularities of the HIV pandemic in the treatment possibility era. This approach provides a way of conceptualising HIV medical, social, cultural and political treatment and prevention technologies and their hybrids. The perspective draws attention to the sociocultural and political aspects of HIV medical treatment technologies and to the increasingly bio-technical bases for HIV prevention. It also encourages reflection on forms of HIV prevention and social care that are not typically understood as technologies but that, as has been demonstrated, share many structural and political features with technical, biomedical means of addressing HIV. This perspective can also allow us to grapple with relations between treatment and prevention, as many of the chapters in this volume have demonstrated.
